The joint effort of thethirdplace and Dickens Heath Village Church that combined a “traditional” American Thanksgiving meal and messy church was really delightful. We met lots of people for the first time, while others we’ve known many years joined us, over 70 of us in all. Really impressed by the family that had just moved into the village and came along not knowing anybody – how very brave! Sarah did a fantastic job of organizing the messy church portion, the talk by Chris was spot on, the photographs by Doug and Millie added a nice touch for families. So proud of so many who worked so hard to prepare food and the school hall, and for everyone who cleaned up and put everything away afterwards. The word for the day was “thanks”, and I am full of thanks. To see a gallery of photos go to thethirdplace network facebook page. Below, that’s Sarah on the right leading the silly songs!
